The Osun State Police Command has arrested Dr Ramon Adedoyin, the founder of Oduduwa University and the Polytechnic, Ile-Ife, over the death of Timothy Adegoke, a master’s degree student of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU).

The police spokesperson said Adedoyin is currently in police detention, undergoing interrogation in connection with the case while awaiting the autopsy report from the hospital.

Osun State Commissioner of Police, CP Olawale Olokode thanked members of the public, especially the bereaved family, students, and management of OAU for their patience to allow the police to continue on a thorough investigation on the matter.
